Thus, by their fruit you will recognize them.
This Scripture applies to politicians as well as anyone. What really amazes me, though, is how little this wisdom ever gets applied.
Liberal policies in this country can be linked directly to an almost unbelievable breakdown of the traditional family, to a corruption of our culture to the point that it’s often unwise to leave a child at home with the television remote control (that wasn’t a problem when I was a kid), to a national debt of astronomical proportions that will burden Americans for generations to come, to a heightening of racial division and racial politics, to rising crime and attacks on police, to welfare dependency, to bureaucrats who snip away at our freedom, to attempts to weaken our military…really, the list of evils that can legitimately be linked to liberal policies is endless.
And yet liberals keep pushing the same snake oil of big government, high taxes, foreign policy weakness, and apparently endless sexual revolution, and cowardly political correctness, and all too often they get elected.
Part of that is because too many people like us don’t pay enough attention. We don’t look at the fruits of feel-good, sound-good policies. And a lot of the time we don’t even vote.
The Left wants to fundamentally transform America – that means to take us away from our Christian and constitutional principles. I don’t know about you, but I like the fruits of our Founding Fathers’ ideals that are based on time-tested truths and have proved to be infinitely better than the fruits of modern liberalism.
